Drew Brees is used to facing terrifying defensive linemen, but he had a different foe Monday night. The New Orleans Saints quarterback appeared on "Running Wild with Bear Grylls" and faced off against a crocodile!

Thankfully Brees came out on top -- he even ate the croc for dinner later that day -- so the Saints can rest assured he will be returning to camp with all of his appendages intact. Which is more than some NFL players can say.

Brees is not the first celebrity to appear on the survivalist show. Other guests include Kate Winslet, Channing Tatum and even the commander in chief. President Obama ate a real bear's leftovers -- some salmon -- while on the show.

Brees and the Saints kick off their season on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.
